Mac Pro owner report on AC1900 Asus 802.11ac PCIe card:
Updated the page on Mac/OS X Compatible 802.11ac adapters/cards with a Mac Pro owner report on the Asus PCE-AC68 802.11ac PCI express card ($99.99 list). An earlier report here on the ASUS PCE-AC66 PCIe card also noted OS X support and a driver mod for Thunderbolt PCIe chassis use. Page also has info/links on other 802.11ac adapters (USB, Mini-PCIe) with Mac OS X support. (Including driver links if required.)

FYI: Friday's post on another iMac SATA Mini-PCIe card Mod was updated this morning with a follow-up report that he swapped out the SATA3 card that didn't work for a (working) SI3132 based SATA2 card that requires an OS X driver install. (Not bootable. Same card used in previous iMac and (2006/2007) Mac mini eSATA card mods here.)
